ISU Onstage presents "Concerto No. 2 for Piano and Orchestra”


This week, ISU Onstage will present a performance from February 9th, 2018 by the Idaho State-Civic Symphony, under the direction of Dr. Julie Sorensen. This performance features works by Mozart, Khatchaturian (caught-cha-turian), and Wagner (vagner) as well as Rachmaninoff’s (rock-mawn-e-noff) “Concerto number 2 for Piano and Orchestra” featuring the brilliant pianist Natalia Lauk.


Natalia, originally from Siberia, is an accomplished soloist, serves as an accompanist for Idaho State University’s music department, and has a flourishing piano studio here in Pocatello. Natalia is also a champion of Russian music, making this a perfect fit for her and the ISCS.


Logan Ramsey was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho, and is now a senior studying journalism at Idaho State University. He's currently working as Digital Content Director for KISU and News Editor for The Bengal. His aspirations to be a reporter began his senior year of high school when he began to compete in International Extemporaneous Speaking in the National Speech and Debate Association. Halfway through his freshman year of college, he began to write freelance articles for the Idaho State Journal, and a couple of months later he was hired as a part-time reporter. Not long after, he began work as the Associate Editor of ISU's student newspaper, the Bengal. After a semester, he was promoted to Editor-in-Chief and stayed in that position for two semesters. In order to do more writing, he switched to the News Editor position at the paper. Logan is now working hard to ensure the Bengal has stellar news coverage.
